Exploration of French New Wave Cinema

Thursday, October, 8, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

French New Wave cinema, arguably the single most important movement in post-war film, will be discussed by Professor Nicholas Paige via a live webinar from New Canaan Library on Thursday, October 8 at 7 PM EST. Zoom sign in information will be provided upon registration; please register at newcanaanibrary.org.
Fans of film and Francophiles alike will enjoy this unique lecture by Professor Nicholas Paige, PhD. Professor Paige will provide a brief introduction to French New Wave cinema, then rather than review New Wave filmography, he will point to select examples to explore the theoretical, technological, and cultural currents that converged to produce this remarkable source of talent which began around 1959.
